I think they are actually setting it up for a later date if I remember right.

I love the 1 in 5 police were shot with an assault weapon comment. It should read "4 out of 5 were shot with guns we don't want to ban". So even with all of these the max % you're hoping to stop is 20%, and you're HOPING those 20% don't just start doing like the other 80% which means you then won't stop ANYONE.

I should have moved a year ago as many members said a longtime ago. They aren't bullshitting this is real.

This would have me thinking that a huge population around me won't be giving these newly acquired tools of survival to any tyrants anytime soon.

If they already have a semi auto ban in place, it must be friendly fire!

At least a couple of bills show some got damned common sense, highlighted from this article:
http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-actio...y-of-the-house

Two freshman Republicans introduced contrary bills that would end federal law requiring that areas around schools be designated as "gun free zones." These bills, H.R. 35 from Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) and H.R. 133 from Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), are a response to findings that violence in and around schools has increased since the gun free zone law took effect in 1990.

"By disarming qualified citizens and officials in schools we have created a dangerous situation for our children," Stockman said. "In the 22 years before enactment of 'gun free school zones' there were two mass school shootings.

"In the 22 years since enactment of 'gun free schools' there have been 10 mass school shootings," he added. "Not only has the bill utterly failed to protect our children it appears to have placed them in danger."
Companion bills could be introduced on the Senate si

$#IT!!!!! The supreme court struck down Illinois' concealed carry ban. They gave them six months to resubmit a new law that allows citizens to carry. Their cut off is May or June I do believe. After that, you're free to carry with a foid card if they don't come up with something new to restrict you.

Newark might as well be in New York. Unfortunately south jersey shares the same state laws. So far we don't have any twats like that.

Shouldn't this be considered blackmailing?

http://m.nydailynews.com/1.1234543#bmb=1

"Cuomo’s strategy calls for launching a major public-relations assault on Senate Republicans with assistance from members of national and state anti-gun groups that he is already working with to develop the stricter gun laws.

“There’s potential big money for ad campaigns,” the source noted. “There’s a lot of people interested in this issue that can be tapped.”

What's really frustrating is these slimy bastards found he taken care of easily. However it'd almost prove their point and they'd be martyrs. So we have to okay their political bullshit game, and possibly be forced into a situation we don't want.

Joseph Nee, the convicted perpitrator, used his father's issued glock 40 to showcase his threats at the bus stop. Why is this important?

His father is Thomas Nee, President of the National Association of Police Organizations and Boston police officer. He is also part of Biden's school violence committee.

Pathetic.
